YouTube 2: The Hogwarts Library Collection by J. Rowling Science Fiction A collection of three books treasured by users of the great library at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry: A treasure trove of magical facts and fairy tales, the Hogwarts Library Collection is an essential companion to the Harry Potter series.
Rowling writing as Newt Scamander and six new beasts! Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.
Quidditch Through the Ages: Did you know that: The game first began to evolve on Queerditch Marsh — What Bumphing is? That Puddlemere United is oldest team in the Britain and Ireland league founded All this information and much more could be yours once you have read this book: The Tales of Beedle the Bard: Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore.
Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix vk. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint With their warning about Lord Voldemort's return scoffed at, Harry and Dumbledore are targeted by the Wizard authorities as an authoritarian bureaucrat slowly seizes power at Hogwarts. Rowling The Eighth Story.
Nineteen Years Later. Based on an original new story by J. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 1 of 5.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 2 of 5. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 3 of 5. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 4 of 5.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 5 of 5. The author spends an extraordinary amount of time writing, rewriting, and perfecting it. The best first chapters of books set up the world you're about to dive into, reveal the voice of the story, introduce main characters, set up the high stakes, and hint at just a sliver of conflict — enough to keep you intrigued. My first rule of thumb when I pick out a new book and not judge it by its cover , is to read the first line and first few paragraphs.
If I'm hooked with that little of information, then I'm sold. I can be picky, but the method hasn't failed me yet.
And if you're the same way, then I'm sure you'll recognize some of the incredible books below. Investing in a new story is exciting as well as time-consuming, so you want to make sure the book you're about to spend a several solid hours with is going to be worthwhile. And I can guarantee that these 12 books with heart-pounding, exciting, and unique introductions will satisfy your epic first-chapter needs: The tone, the voice, and the conflict at hand is all set up for this tangled and twisted story in just a few sentences.
Nobokov can sway you into wanting to read about an adult in love with a child, and that is pure, freakish talent. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins When it comes to first chapters, Collins knew how to pace certain things out, hitting us with the mysterious term "the reaping" at the end of paragraph one. It has elements of Shirley Jackson's epic short story "The Lottery. The world of Panem is intense, and instead of shoving this new dystopia in our faces, it's given in fragmented pieces that keeps us interested.
I remember reading this first chapter and thinking that I was in trouble because I was already in love with a book about children fighting to the death. Mark Watney, an astronaut and botanist, is abandoned on Mars and he's screwed. There's not much hope for Watney to survive this catastrophe, but just enough to already get our fingers crossed that he'll make it out somehow.
The scientific details and voice are what makes this first chapter epic. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk Tyler Durden is certainly a character readers can't help but want to know more about, one that would make any reader stop and grip a book tighter. Especially while he's holding a gun to the narrator's neck, talking of immortality and death.
Oh, and while that's all going on, a bomb is also set to go off in the next 10 minutes. As the countdown decreases, the story is slowly revealed, making this first chapter a nerve-wracking experience. The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern With the use of second person, Morganstern invites you into the Night Circus and there's no turning back from there. It's not an average circus, but one stripped of the colors and only opens when the sun sets. The anticipation is clearly met from the intro and just like any circus act, it hypnotizes you to keep reading further into this dark and mysterious story following two young magicians.
Fahrenheit by Ray Bradbury With an opening line of "It was a pleasure to burn," I'm not sure how you can't be hooked immediately.
Since Fahrenheit lacks chapters but is made up in parts, the first intro to the story sets the stage for burning books. It puts the reader in a state of fear and curiosity all at once, and with Bradbury's magnificent storytelling, he leads you from one clue to the next with new characters and Guy Montague's sudden wonder if what he's doing is right.
The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien Not only does O'Brien introduce the compelling Jimmy Cross right off the bat, but he sets the stage for the intricate outline of this story by switching between backstory and the details of each gun every solider carries. The Things They Carried is split up into different stories rather than chapters, but each one easily pulls the reader further into Vietnam, the horrors to come, and the truth of love and war — and how they aren't very different from one another.
Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides The calming intro to Middlesex is what enticed me to keep reading further, along with the gender-identity and hundreds of issues the main character, Calliope Stephanides, or Cal later on, faces.
The way the Stephanides family is explained in the first chapter sets up the reader for certain expectations, and while this story goes into many different directions, you know from then on that this story will be one you'll never forget. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon I've never been someone interested in reading about a dead dog because who is? Once again, the voice of the main character, Christopher John Francis Boone, is clear and unique — one that you want to keep reading no matter what he's talking about.
This first chapter is emotionally building and will keep you hooked until you find out the mystery behind the dead dog, among the many mysteries to solve along the way. Victor, a small child who is watching his uncles fight like high and low pressure fronts, is also the eyes and ears for our introduction to the Spokane Indian reservation.
The poetic prose and metaphorical core that reveals some of Alexie's most rambunctious characters and their stories is what makes this chapter — and the entire book — simply amazing. The narrator, Death himself, points out a very clear observation that we will all die, but to not be afraid. In the ending lines of the first piece, Germans and Jewish characters are mentioned, making the connection of World War II.
There's never been a chapter that's thrilled me as much as terrified me as this one, and not only that, but it also intrigues the reader as to who this book thief is, and what's to come next.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.
Rowling The first Harry Potter book's first chapter hooked millions of us on a series that we're still madly in love with today. Who knew staring off with such a horrid family like the Dudleys would become one of the most epic first chapters of all time? My interest dies in the increasing pollution and rural poverty of the Industrial Revolution. A stickler for details, passionate grammarian, and writer, I hope that you find this textbook informative, detailed, accurate, and grammatically correct in every way.
Mara N. Writer Mandi D. Why molecular theory, of all things? Even though I don't have any Muggles in my close family, my cousin Lorcan and I have shared a fascination of their culture since we were little.
We strongly believe that Muggle ideas and technology can revolutionize us, if we let it. I transferred to Hogwarts my seventh year to be closer to Lorcan and his brother Lysander. My fondest wish is that, after college, I can teach at Hogwarts, so this has been a perfect fit for me. I sincerely hope that Hogwarts can also be the perfect fit for you.
I loved the academics at Salem, and made some truly amazing friends. In my sixth year, I was granted the opportunity to study abroad for a year at Hogwarts, where I was given the opportunity to be sorted and found myself in a Hatstall between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.
Sorted officially into Hufflepuff, I could not be happier and enjoyed my year at Hogwarts, though I must say Salem Institute's History of Magic professor was far less dull than Hogwarts' ghost professor!
I returned to Salem Institute for my seventh year and graduated at the top of my class, from there continuing onto Muggle university, finding my aptitude for Muggle subjects had not diminished due to rigorous hard work I put in over the summers.
While in Muggle university, I am studying social work, but my love for history never faded, so I was ever so glad when I could apply to cowrite a new edition of A History of Magic!
I have enjoyed writing this book very much, and I hope all the students will enjoy the book as well. Alex S. I was only able to study on the grounds of Hogwarts during my first to fourth year. When the war broke, I went back home to the Philippines to avoid the conflicts arising at the time. Thankfully, Hogwarts granted me a chance to pursue my studies at a "longdistance term. I am currently a researcher at the Institute of Asian Magical History in the Philippines and work part-time at the neighboring Muggle university as a student moderator.
My research has brought me to numerous parts of the world where I had the opportunity to meet and speak with renowned magical historians like Madame Bathilda Bagshot. I live in the heart of Manila with a small Philippine scops owl named Nugget and a mysterious midnight visitor who keeps stealing my oranges. Why Study History? Magic is the unspoken reason for everything, as any schooling witch and wizard would know. Following the introduction of the International Statue of Secrecy, which sent Wizardkind into hiding and forced us to adapt to the Muggle way of life, our place in the history of mankind has been hidden from the Muggle historians, who did not even witness the celebrations following the Second Wizarding War and whose history books explain the "unexplainable"--those things of which magic is the real cause--by citing unseen forces that can manipulate the natural balance of life.
The magical community has succumbed to the dire fact that, despite our memorable and very influential contribution to mankind, it would be best that we keep it a secret from our nonmagic counterparts.
Although human effort is still very important, magic has played its part in shaping human society. But then, what is magic? Young wizarding children know about magic even before they mutter a word. Magic is a term used to describe both the good and the bad. It is a gift blessed to witches and wizards alone for they hold the knowledge and wisdom to use it to aid and not to destroy.
Magical historians believe that magic has its roots long before the documentation of human existence. Wizard scholars have devoted their lives to the search and rescue of our ancient lineage. Quite a number of discoveries have been made in mountain ranges in the Himalayas and the Canadian mountains where wizard archaeologists have uncovered cave dwellings that depict signs of magical influence in the lives of the dwellers that used to live there.
It was believed that the caves dated back to the time of the Great Lizards, a time when man first emerged on earth. Magic always leaves traces, and the caves were full of magical presence. In Professor Utoipius Black's book Uncovering Magic, he shares an instance during his excavations in a Russian mountainside, where one of the necklaces that were left inside the caves attempted to strangle the wizard who touched it.
It appeared to have been bewitched with an Anti-Thievery spell, so that only the owner could touch it. Magic was present long before man, but it needed man to be harnessed into something useful and practical.
Wizards have always been an influence to society-building. They do not appear in any Vietnamese history books because they went against the government's decision to install a single-party state. They were exiled back to India where they are currently residing. As future society-builders, young wizards must immerse themselves in our history and enhance the development of Wizarding kind.
Our success as a society lies in our ability to promote our good values and hinder the growth of our bad beings. Indeed, the magical community, like any other community, is prone to success and failure, but knowledge of our past will prepare us for future endeavours. An example of this would be the Wand Wars during the s. Many witches and wizards died in an effort to protect the ancient secrets of wandlore from the Muggles who sought to acquire it.
Witch-hunting was rampant then, and the fate of our treasured wands was left to the hands of our able wizard ancestors who ran into hiding, while their wives, sisters, daughters sacrificed their lives for their escape.
Magic's Beginnings Wizards can be traced back to the very beginnings of mankind, even during the time of the Neanderthals. Displays in the Australian museum of magic show rock paintings of people in loincloths brandishing one regular arm and one long, oddly-shaped arm. Australian wizards have studied their Aboriginal ancestors and their acquisition of what looks suspiciously like a wizard's wand.
Professor Milano Sundarian of the Australian Academy for Magic has always believed that magic was first born in the Australian outbacks, but was it really?
In the 17th century, up north in the mountains of the Himalayas, a team of European wizards set up a campsite, initially to observe the habitat of the Yeti, and discovered remains of an ancient tunnel that led deep into the mountain, where it is believed that Himalayan wizards had set up a community before abandoning it for unknown causes. The tunnels date back to the time of the Ice Age. What kind of wizards lived in these tunnels? Were they as advanced as their Australian counterparts?
Research is still ongoing to predict the moment that the first wizard came to life. Theories have been proposed over the years, but none have yet proved the period when the first wizard emerged There are three controversial theories that have their supporters and their detractors.
The theory implies that all magical blood came from one man who was christened Uno Mas. He was a stocky, built man with a head shaped like a gorilla's head. He slouched and walked dragging his abnormally long limbs on the ground. Uno Mas manifested the same communication traits as those who lived during his time, communicating in grunts and pokes.
Some theorists believe that Trolls also stem from Uno Mas but have not evolved as quickly as wizards did. Unlike the Muggle men of that time, Uno Mas had a keen sense of discovery. He would pick up pieces of wood and stone and fashion them into items which, at that time, meant nothing, but were the beginning of the wizards' aspiring quality to improve and to develop.
While the Muggle men focused more on food acquisition and mating, Uno Mas was busy creating many things. Some believe he developed the first wheel, but no solid proof has been found to back up this claim.
The theory also explains that Uno Mas made the first wand. Stories have circulated that it came from the bonfire from which fire began. Others say that it belonged to a very high, prehistoric tree, a branch from which Uno Mas picked up and threw, frustrated that the fruit did not fall when he shook the tree, hitting a fruit and causing it to fall.
Its counterpart, The Anti-Uno Mas Theory, written by wizard activist Josiah Loppet, also sheds some light on the theory's shortcomings.
The Great Migration Theory As seen in animal behaviour, migration is a normal survival method. Migratory routes As seen in animal behaviour, migration is a normal survival method. Migratory routes have been monitored to discover the whereabouts of our wizard ancestors' birthplaces and their burial grounds. In this theory, wizards, unaware of their abilities and still mingling with the Muggles in an effort to survive the natural conditions, would travel with them to wherever the food source would travel.
Sometime during the Descent of Blizz, called by Muggles "the Ice Age," these wizards, having discovered their unique gift, set up their own group, left their non-magical brethren, and began their own journey around the world.
They still followed the migratory routes, which are still being researched by wizards and Muggles alike, but the wizards' tracks lead into non-existence. In , a Chinese explorer named Ho Mao Tseng followed these tracks before stopping in the middle of a deserted area in the shadow of the Swiss Alps.
At the time, Prior Incantato had not yet been invented, so Tseng only deduced that the entire group died in an avalanche, but in the early s, a group of Gringotts' curse breakers unearthed the spells that hid their lair from the world. An underground chamber, much like the Himalayan tunnel, was discovered, and a few artefacts remained intact, encased in a block of ice. Tools, clothing, and a few of their other items held magical properties, including a vanishing cloak that held a number of diricrawl feathers and unicorn horns made into necklaces.
Bodies were never found, but it is believed that these ancient wizards abandoned the tunnel and decided to go their separate ways and thus created the societies that exist today. The Theory of Hocus Pocus focuses on the first encounter with magic. According to historians of the Brussels Museum of Ancient Magical History, magic was first encountered even before that fateful first controlled fire.
The museum has a very broad collection of ancient note-taking materials and documents. Markings were written on bark, and researchers constantly make new discoveries for every new piece of evidence given to them. One tree bark told the story of how men chose their women, and it wasn't the Muggle interpretation of hitting your woman with a giant club and dragging her by her hair. It was actually a very simple test. Women prefer strong men, so naturally, the strongest man would have his pick of women to choose from.
However, men of that time also wanted a particular kind of woman: submissive, but with a great deal of talent. The writing goes on to say that it was the women who chose the men by presenting their chosen mate a tamed man-eating, giant lizard. At that time, women were naturally gifted with the power of persuasion. The woman with the most powerful sense of persuasion, the one who could win the heart of a man-eating, giant lizard and live to show it off to her future in-laws, would gain the honour of claiming that man.
Young wizards should bear in mind that without magic, there would be no witch or wizard, and it should be given great respect and used for the promotion of the human race. The indigenous peoples of the Americas, also known as Native Americans, were a highly diverse group of people, spanning from what is now modern Canada down to what is now modern Chile and Argentina. All of these societies had integrated tribes of both magic and nonmagic "Muggle" peoples, with witches and wizards holding traditionally important roles in their communities.
Of particular interest to magical history are the Clovis culture throughout the Americas, the Olmec peoples of Mexico, and the Maya of southern Mexico and northern Central America. The customs, cultures, and histories of each of these tribes are varied and rich.
